This course aims to assist you in taking better care of yourself and in getting the most out of living. The majority of people completing the programme report lasting physical and psychological benefits including:
an increased ability to relax
greater energy and enthusiasm for life
an increased ability to cope more effectively with both short and long-term stressful situations.
The aim of the programme is to learn new ways to handle challenging physical
sensations, feelings, moods, or social interactions.
Home practice plays an important role in this course and we strongly recommend considering if you are able to commit to practicing up to 30-60 minutes per day. Mindfulness is an experiential practice, its benefits come through practice, not through intellectual reading or learning about it. To support your home practice, at the beginning of the course we will email to you an extensive Participants Handbook and each week you will be sent that week’s practice as an mp3 file. Home practice includes listening and practicing together with the mp3s, reflecting and making notes about your experience, and practicing some informal practices during your day.
During the course, as you practice mindfulness, many different experiences may surface, ones that feel intense and challenging. We encourage participants to stay as well as they can with all that arises, developing a new relationship with the unpleasant experiences. This is an important part of the course, we intentionally learn to turn towards challenges with kindness rather than pushing them away as something we don’t want to deal with. During the course, you will learn ways to manage difficult thoughts and emotions as well as anchor yourself with your breath or body if the experience becomes overwhelming.
